    im guessing the hardtop WS6 is a regular trans am with the added parts... it could have been done at a dealer though...

    It could be a Formula WS6. Another difference is the bumper cover on these. Look at the pictures Black Bird 99 put up, and then look at Waynestep's icon near his name of the 02 WS6 TA. The formula has the 2 circular fog and park lights. The WS6 TA is different.

    1996 ws6 formula hardtop

    YES they did make t/a's and formula's that had ws6 package , there were 55 red formula ws6 made in 96 35 of which were T-tops. I have a 96formula ws6 hardtop , 55k mile showroom condition. I take it to car shows all the time and have never seen another hardtop 96 form. ws6. Ive looked all over the net and cant find one anywhere so seems I have a needle in a haystack so to speak. general maintanace under the hood , water pump distributer ,and coil 10.5 wiring harness, mass air flow and tb, pacesetter headers and dual all the way back to flowmasters. I have kept every receipt and original parts came with 3.23 gears went to 4.10. Fast and fun I do have the production numbers for all 96 firebirds ! I can post if anyone is interested.

    Have you put in a throttle body air foil? Those twin throttle bodies wake right up with one installed. Inexpensive and easy to do too.

    2000 Trans Am WS6

    Years ago I believe I was studying a build sheet of 1998 cars and I recall it claimed there were only 5 or 6 hard top WS6s in the first production line of the 1998s, as if it was an accident or something. Wish I could find it now, this was back in 2008 or so. But I do remember seeing something on a webpage claiming the only hard top WS6 in the LS1 era cars was 1998.

    You may be thinking of the two '98 T/A WS6 H/Ts that were most likely pre-production mules and not generally available to the public since T-Tops were STANDARD on all T/A coupes in '98+. However, don't forget T-Tops were NOT standard on Formulas until after WS6 was no longer an option on Formulas.

    Here's the production numbers of WS6 HARDTOPS (detail breakdowns at links in my sig):

    1996:
    Formula WS6 H/T: 171
    T/A WS6 H/T: 268

    1997:
    Formula WS6 H/T: 178
    T/A WS6 H/T: 310

    1998:
    Formula WS6 H/T: 39
    T/A WS6 H/T: 2

    1999:
    Formula WS6 H/T: 65
    T/A WS6 H/T: 0 (no T/A HTs after those 2 prototype / mules in '98)

    2000:
    Formula WS6 H/T: 91

    No Formula WS6 production after 2000, thus no way to get a WS6 w/ H/T after 2000.

    That sounds right. Thanks.
